Sedition 2019 is a festival curated by Lesa-Belle Furhagen and Toby Creswell that celebrates public art and protest of the 1970s. It is focused on the Sydney underground and the huge creative wave that broke during those years. The festival is made up of music, talks, exhibitions, cabaret and cinema and takes place at locations throughout Sydney. Through our partnership, the Power Institute is pleased to support the festival talks.
